Then, may be, we should flag them accordingly. Let's imagine a new flag which tags perl-modules as a "remora" (*) package. As such perl-modules would need to be always installed (or removed) together with perl (with the same version). And the dependency resolver algorithm would handle only one package (perl) internally. On the downside, we'd need yet another flag in debian/control. Thoughts ?
